Are these squared off or rounded on the edge

I would actually be cutting these down into thin 1/4" slices to make small 2"x2" squares for my wife to do some craft projects. Just trying to plan ahead if I'll need to run them through the router first. Thanks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pressure treated balusters, shipped This product did not come in the Redwood pressure treated wood that all of the pressure treated products come at the store. If you are going to provide products they should be the same. It cost me more as had to buy a stain to hopefully match them to the rest of the deck which I wanted to just coat with a clear UF product. Also some of the balusters had huge knots in the middle and guess what they broke, so I had to go to the store to buy more that were not pressure treated. As usual Home Depot cost me more money in the end because the quality was not what it should have been.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for... I bought these balusters as they are affordable (spelled "cheap") and used with treated and pre-milled railing also sold at HD. The main issue I encountered (and also noticed in the store) is that this product is prone to warping. My experience is around 20% or more will have this problem. This is due to the balusters being sold and delivered almost sopping wet. To avoid the warping issue the balusters should be already dry when sold... optimally. kiln dried. Unfortunately such a product is not sold at HD. While I appreciate the treated wood, the warping can mean that you're deck or porch railing might end up looking like its made out of fresh pasta. I noticed the warping AFTER installation so I attempted to use some clamps to mitigate the problem before painting.. In hindsight, I probably would get the balusters at least 60 days ahead of installation.and let them thoroughtly dry out, Any that warp get returned with the rest remaining usable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Baluster packs They worked out great. Quality was good. Lengths were not consistent, but since they all had to be cut to correct length, that really did not matter. We are very happy with them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Online balusters I ordered 8 bundles of 16 balusters. Out of all the balusters there were only 3 that were warped. They arrived earlier than expected and were 4 bundles in each box. Free delivery. I am very pleased with the purchase as well as the price for ordering online.
